Created by a team of young video game designers in 2055, The Universe started as a small experiment. It was meant to be nothing more than a place for a group of friends to meet up and spend time together from the comfort of their own homes. What it turned into was far from the original idea. While friends can still meet up, there are over three billion active users at any one time. You can befriend them, steal from them or kill them if that is your preference.

From the Highlands of Scotland to the towering residential blocks of Singapore, the world has been taken over by the 'game' that lets you be whoever you want. Businesses employ people to work in The Universe while particularly good 'users' can earn a living simply by their activities within The Universe. The financial clout that The Universe has surpasses any one nation or business in the world.

The developers location is a secret and it is presumed they live in one of the many mega cities Paradise levels. The levels are called Paradise because that is exactly what they are. Open, spacious areas away from the heavily overcrowded cities that now make up the majority of the worlds population centers. In the Paradise levels there isn't a need for money, those lucky enough to live there are able to avoid having to work and have their every want and desire provided for them.

Now the year is 2075 and the developers have announced a competition, the winning individual or guild will be provided with ten places in their most local Paradise location to deal out as they please. The corporations have begun mass recruitment drives with the promise of a lottery for their employees to have a chance to win a place. This has led to what many call the Corporation Wars. Large scale battles break out regularly between corporations as they try to gain a foothold in the competition.

Your clan, The Legion of Lions, is based in London. They are fairly well known on the clan circuit but until now have watched the competition from a distance. With the large armies of the corporations trying not to lose ground to the others, the clan have decided to get involved and make a push to win the competition.

While all this is going on in The Universe, some of the more underhanded corporations are doing whatever they can to disrupt users and their clans in the real world. Cutting power supplies and network connections and paying off police enforcers to arrest well known players are just a couple of ways they are doing business.

To win the prize you and your clan must stay ahead of the corporations not just in The Universe but in the real world as well. For a group of people who have never met outside of the virtual world, you'll need to work together in the real world or possibly find yourselves locked away for a very long time.




This is just to gauge interest. I’m working on the background stuff so the OOC won’t be up for a while but if you would be interested let me know. The idea is that the RP will have chapters that will alternate between the real and virtual worlds. Beyond that more info will be in the OOC when it gets put up.

Potentially interested. I've got too many RP's on my plate at the moment but since this is apparently not starting for a while I'll still put my name in, in case I'm available when it starts.

It sounds interesting, I'll definitely give ya that. Who wouldn't love some virtual competition while avoiding getting arrested irl? On a serious note, the possibilities are pretty endless.

To everyone who’s shown interest, thank you. Realistically I’m thinking maybe 2 weeks and I’ll have the OOC up and ready. I’ll be sure to tag you all. If you have any questions or what not then feel free to ask here or PM me.

I’ll look to get a CS template finalised in the next week so you have something to work with.

@CaptainSully to what extent is this based on Ready Player One? Just the fact that it's a kind of dystopian future where people use a virtual world as a form of escape, or does The Universe function like the Oasis? Are the items in the game based off of other media?

@King Cosmos well like RPO, users log in through headsets with cheap kit right up to super expensive. The world is has a bit more of a cyber punk feel to it when compared to RPO.

As for The Universe, it pretty much functions like the Oasis although I’ve written up a few different things such as clan held locations, player based home locations etc.

Items in game will be based on real-real-world media. In game weapons will mostly be standard like simple pistols, swords etc. However there will be rare items that players can have, such as a Green Lantern Power Ring or the BFG from Doom.

Hope that clears a bit up for you. If not just say 👍🏻
